Almost A Dirty Dozen with SHEA TABACK- March 2024

| 14 March 2024 | Reply

According to a recent press release: “Shea Taback, a rising star in the music scene, has officially released her debut single, “HOME,” just in time for Valentine’s Day. The song, a poignant exploration of heartbreak and resilience, offers a unique perspective on relationships, contrasting the commonly celebrated theme of finding one’s “home” with the harsh reality of betrayal and moving on. Shea Taback’s musical journey began at an early age, having been immersed in the world of music since birth. Watching her father Joe Taback (Breaking in a Sequence), perform on stage as a baby, she quickly developed a passion for the art form. By the time she could form a sentence, Shea was already gracing small stages around Orange County, captivating audiences with her covers.” We get Shea to discuss new music, influences, and more.

My latest release was intended to captivate an audience then has gone through a very confusing and hurtful relationship. My generation deals with so many struggles when it comes to relationships, this song is supposed to help people realize that it shouldn’t be normal to be with someone who confuses and hurts you.

2. What got you into music, and can you tell us about the moment you realized you wanted to be a musician?

3. Who would be your main musical influences?

Billie Eilish, Jessie Murph, and Nessa Barrett.

4. If you could call in any one collaborator to do a song with, who would it be, and why?

It would be hard to choose from my top 3 because of how much I admire them. But if I had to choose, it would be Billie. She knows how to get an audience to feel what she’s feeling in her music, and that’s what one of my biggest goals is.

5. How would you describe your music to someone who’d never listened to you before? What is the one comparison a reviewer or fan has made that made you cringe or you disagreed with?

I would describe my music as an emotional roller coaster, simply because that’s what a lot of relationships are like at a young age.

6. What’s the best thing about being a musician?

Releasing emotion in a healthy way.

7. When the band are all hanging out together, who cooks; who gets the drinks in; and who is first to crack out the acoustic guitars for a singalong?

My dad is the person who helps me with all my music. The second I tell him I have lyrics… he immediately pulls out a guitar and is ready to play.

8. When was the last time you were star struck and who was it?

When I listened to the song “Upgrade” by Jessie Murph.

9. If you weren’t a musician, what would be your dream job?

A clothing model or traveling hair stylist (

10. Looking back over your career, is there a single moment or situation you feel was a misstep or you would like to have a “do over”, even if it didn’t change your current situation?

My misstep was posting videos of me singing in middle school on a YouTube account I’ll never be able to get into… so embarrassing.

11. If you could magically go back in time and be a part of the recording sessions for any one record in history, which would you choose – and what does that record mean to you?

“Happier than Ever” by Billie Eilish because that song touched my heart so deeply I will always be able to go to that song for comfort.
